Friends? Or cease-fire?

Friends? Or cease-fire?, originally uploaded by txfiddlechick.
Our 8-year old big black cat is I think starting to get used to the 1-year-old kitten who has been making his life a living hell.

For the first 2 months after the little one moved himself in, our old cat stomped around the house muttering under his breath. We were the feline equivalent of dead to him - if we tried to pet him, we'd get a passive aggressive slump and an annoyed sounding growl, then he'd storm off in a huff.

He eventually forgave us, but still growled and swatted annoyedly at the little one and generally tried to avoid him. Which was a challenge since the little one likes to follow him everywhere.

Over the last month or so, we've started to find them hanging out together more, and while they still play-fight a lot, it's more playful and less aggressive. And I haven't seen the old cat growl at the kitten in weeks.
